The Enlightened Nightscape 1700-1830

Call for Proposals The Enlightened Nightscape 1700-1830

Edited by: Pamela Phillips, Ph.D. Department of Hispanic Studies University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras

Traditional timelines divide the past into the “Dark Ages” and the “Enlightenment”, with their corresponding associations with ignorance, the irrational, and superstition in opposition to light, clarity, and reason. In recent years numerous academic disciplines have challenged this black and white view, converging in and on the night to study the many dimensions of the other half of our daily twenty-four-hour cycle. The emerging field of Night ...

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

UNDERSTANDING, ACKNOWLEDGING, REPRESENTING ENVIRONMENTAL EMERGENCY E-REA SPECIAL ISSUE OF JUNE 2021 GUEST EDITORS: SYLVIE NAIL & CAMILLE MANFREDI

In an article dated 2006, climate scientists advocated more research into: “the social and cultural processes of speaking about climate, of the formation and usage of lay knowledge, of the formation and social functioning of mental images, icons and popular explanations of climate and its interaction with people. We are in need of social and cultural sciences to map, understand and, as far as possible, predict the ...

Gothic Nature Journal Seeks Film/TV Reviews

Gothic Nature is seeking TV/ film reviews for its next issue. The show or film reviewed should have a clear thematic link to ecohorror/ecoGothic, and the reviews should aim to be about 1,000 words in length (Harvard style and British spelling and punctuation conventions appreciated). We prefer reviews that focus on recent films or TV (within the last couple years), but we can be flexible about this, especially if you want to concentrate on a longer thematic through-line.

Children’s Literature and Climate Change

Children’s Literature and Climate Change: Special Issue of The Lion and the Unicorn

Guest Editors: Marek Oziewicz, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Lara Saguisag, College of Staten Island-City University of New York

We seek essays on how children’s literature empowers young people to productively engage with the challenges of climate change. After decades of climate change denial and toothless mainstream response, young people are angry. In response to climate change illiteracy and the impotence and negligence of adult-led institutions, teenage activists such as Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and Greta Thunberg ...

Nonhuman Animals, Climate Crisis and the Role of Literature

CFP (Edited Collection): Nonhuman Animals, Climate Crisis and the Role of Literature

The world is in crisis: socially, politically, environmentally. We are increasingly confronted with notions of otherness as the world is shrinking – we interact with diverse cultures, ideas, agendas as we never have before. Yet, at the same time, we are increasingly polarized in our thinking, with the rise of a global right-wing agenda challenging a progressive wave of policies the world over. Yet, these crises seem to pale in consideration of ...

Now that we are two decades into the twenty-first century, courses that thematize the literature of climate change have become more and more popular and more of an ethical imperative to teach. Students today need to understand the global environmental devastation they will inherit, and the literary imagination uniquely addresses such consequences as warming temperatures, desertification, sea-level rise, climate refugees, the spread of disease, and the collapse ...

Nineteenth-Century Contexts: Special Issue on Ecologies of the Atlantic Archipelago

May 2021 Issue

Guest Editors: Seán Hewitt & Anna Pilz

Studies of the intertwined histories of Great Britain, Ireland, and their associated islands have given rise to the notion of ‘archipelagic studies’. As in John Kerrigan’s seminal work Archipelagic English, the cover of which shows the familiar image of Great Britain and Ireland on a map tilted, reaching out from mainland Europe and into the Atlantic, this involves a new perspective on geography, identity, and the ...
